Anthony Kahoohanohano died during the Korean War after killing 13 enemy soldiers -- two with a shovel -- as he covered the withdrawal of his squad.

That's what you call "guts."

It is a quality shared by many who serve this Great Country of ours in our darkest hour of need, on the field in combat, facing any enemy who seek to destroy us.

In this account, the bestowing of this Nation's highest honor is befitting, as Pfc. Kahoohanohano not only brings pride and honor to His Family, but also the Veterans of the past, present and future.

Our Ft. DeRussey War Museum houses and represents many of the Veterans and their Memoriablia from WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam conflict.

Earlier erected down the other side of Waikiki Beach is our WWI Natatorium National Memorial.

Thank God out going mayor hanneman will not be able to destroy the Ft. DeRussey War Museum in a manner hanneman seeks now to destroy and rip out the WWI Natatorium National Memorial.

Pfc. Kahoohanohano gave his all for America.

However, hanneman immigrated here and wants to destroy a part of America by tearing down our Natatorium, and it looks like hanneman wants to honor his German heritage (and Samoa that was a former German Protectorate during WWI, when America defeated Germany.)

America is defended by folks like Kahoohanohano, that gave his all.

It does not belong to immigrants like hanneman masquerading as a Hawaiian, that wants to destroy a part of the memory of Veterans of WWI.

Obama will do the honors for a deserving hero, at the same time dishonors all Americans with the new stamp he directed the Postal Service to release commemorating the Muslin Holdays.

Why does it dishonor Americans? Personally, I(and more than likely tens of millions of other Americans)couldn't care less. The ONLY people it will offend are narrow minded, bigoted jackasses like yourself(who dare to call themselves patriots). Remember, THIS IS AMERICA, and people other than rabid right wing waspish bigots live here

How did you come to the determination that this is "all politics"? This man sacrificed his life to save his fellow soldiers. It's not a waste of time and energy to recognize his ultimate sacrifice. The only question is why did it take so long? You obviously have not been in combat to understand this hence your sorry a$$ remark. You know bud, the world doesn't revolve around you.

I agree and what makes it worse is obamaladin doing this cheesy political stunt while he turns his back on the soldiers in Afganistan now. How two faced can you be?

I'm teed off. All these A holes who posted political opinions of Hanneman and Obama when writing about a long delayed award for Kahoohanohno make me sick. There are other threads for that. Idiots!!!!

THIS story is about a war hero getting his due. stick to the subject.

What a tremendously honorable Hawaiian man Anthony Kahoohanohano is. He is way better than Kahanamoku,Naope,and anybody else. We should erect a statue in his name at whatever new war memorial or beach that gets built to replace the natatorium. Best Hawaiian of all!

Truly amazing were the heroics of this 19 year old. Many men were able to grow old because of his sacrifice. While it would be great if these things were done more timely; perhaps it is timely to do this now so that we can appreciate what other 19 year olds are still doing to keep it safe back home where people can debate such trivial matters as politics.

This is an act deserving of the Medal of Honor. What an amazing man and a role model for people. As for Wordsmith: "go copulate yourself" you are a true rectum. It matters to those left behind that the heroic actions of this man are acknowledge by his country. I imagine you have never done much of anything with your life except be a bitter, miserable rectum.

What? Bother you?

Hanneman is aiming to destroy a WWI Memorial for those who died, just like Pfc. Kahoohanohano.

And you don't like that criticism of Hanneman? Too bad.

This is America, lolo... I mean, molo.

You can start your own thread. Beat it.

That's right bruddha. What's it to you?

I don't care about Hanneman or Obama.

This story is about Kaho'ohanohano and only Kaho'ohanohano.

If you're too stupid to have read the story to have seem that, then F off. You must think you're a toughie or something, eh?
